WHEN SEATTLE SIZZLES... with BAD NEWS, WORSE NEWS, and NOT SO BAD COPS



Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die suspiciously Mimi is thrilled to get the story but in her nervous enthusiasm manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help but both are out-foxed by the buxom intern.

How can she stay at KPOW? The atmosphere is toxic. Desperate, Mimi takes a friend’s advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafiya Madam for a resume tape but balks on sending it out. She has a few scruples left. But someone puts the interview on the air anyway and the FBI are suddenly very interested.

At the Seattle Police Department the narcotics detective Shad Mulgrew has his own career crisis. He is framed for stealing drugs from evidence. Are the murdered prostitutes linked to his case? Is he getting too close to the truth? And what is Mimi's father doing working for Eastern Europe's last Communists?

Working together Mimi and Shad search for the truth, and solace from their career problems. At turns funny, sexy, and thrilling with an edgy modern voice, Jump Cut depicts the tangled joys of single life to danger in dark alleys, from the faraway countries to the top of the Space Needle, as the cop and the reporter try to salvage their futures from corruption and too many Cosmos. They end up saving much more than their careers in a wild race to rescue the city they love in this romantic thriller.
